Red face I Think The Media Is Making Too Much Of This So-Called Jennifer/Serena Rivalry

Let's face it; Serena is leading the series 10-6 and Jennifer has only managed two wins off of her in the past three years.

I think b/c they tend to be pretty close matches, even when Jennifer was winning.

I think because you can set the clock on them meeting at EVERY tournament they both play, it´s been build up as a rivalry...and they tend to produce thrillers too.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

well, they need something to try and pull the casual fan in...


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

Did you hear Ted say when they did a shot of Richard Williams in the stands, "I hope he's writing an apology to you, Tracy!" Mind your own business, Ted, kthx.

When Jen or Serena won it was usually in a hard fought match..except 2 or 3..and at first Jen always beat Serena then the vise-versa now they both have their moments against each other

fuck.

Even most of the ones she lost have been close.

Right now, Serena is on Fire and Jennifer cant do a thing about it. Shes running Jennifer around like a rag doll. The last entertaining match from these two was at Wimbledon 2001, the rest, Serena has been whooping up on that ass and/or both playing bad.

In a response to her criticism of Venus' game where she said Venus needs outside coaching, Richard said she wanted to break apart his family and that maybe she didn't have a good childhood/upbringing herself.

Then tonight when the camera focused on Richard writing something Tracy said, "Is he taking notes?" and asshole Ted said, "Hopefully writing an apology to you."
